What's your favorite visual filter? Below is mine, making it easy to distinguish between singular and plural noun and verbs.

Ugg, Philip, your Bible text looks like a construction zone.

Big Smile Precisely! and construction zones were meant to be notices, so I will take that as a complement. It's definitely one of those filters I only turn on when I need it.

What do you mean taste? Why would I be concerned about how Logos tastes? Damian, have you been licking your screen again? Licking is for the dogs...leave it to us professionals.

But not my color scheme? Pitty.

I do like where i see you going with this, though, especially with the single and double line for singular and Plurals.

Are you saying there was a reason no one asked my opinion when debating church carpet colors?

I actually like Phil's - It reveals his true nature:

An on fire "Closet Charismatic"

Its OK to come out of the closet Phil :P, you dont have to hide away my friend...

Its true. To give my Charismatic gifts a whirl one time I hit myself upside the head. God then gave me a prophecy and I knew just where to find the Advil.

I still haven't figured out how to get the visual filter I really want - all the words that require context to carry meaning. Yes, my head is into deixis at the moment. At least I'm not even thinking of it identifying the type of deixis.Big Smile

That's the default.  With the other visual filters off, the words that require context are black.  If you turn on the words of Christ filter then they are divided between black and red.

I personally love your answer ... however, the silly semiotic part of me says "hey, wait a minute" Big Smile

OK here's mine. It's 3 visual filters designed to work together visually as 3 layers.

Key features

  1. I've designed each layer to use a particular type of highlight (e.g. moods use coloured backgrounds, tenses use underlines, and part of speech uses text colours. This gives a visual consistency - you know which aspect of the highlight to look for to assess tense or mood.
  2. I've tried to pick colours and styles that are intuitive e.g. perfect = double underline and pluperfect = triple underline. Green = present (i.e. ongoing) and red = aorist (punctiliar). Orange = imperative (for action).
  3. YOu can mix 'n' match according to your interest at the time.

I'm noticing many things just by observing the highlights - it's like superimposing a verb river on the text, if that were possible.

Thanks
Richard

 

1. Part of Speech

2. Verb Mood

3. Verb Tense

All 3 together
